Bad idea to wait on MK until the latter part of the week?
You will probably e fine- might feel the crowd increase on Friday- I remember skipping out of the parks Friday afternoon last time and not going back. You will be fine. See you there!

That is fine, I was just curious what a big pain (and lots of walking from parking lot to room) it was going to be.

Thanks for any help!

We were at POR last month for our first time ever & went to see YeeHa Bob in the River Roost. It was great fun, adults and kids had a blast singing along and being entertained. We really enjoyed it!! He's not there every night but I would definitely recommend you try to get to see him.

Andre will post the months of April and May activity listing as soon as they are available. He usually posts them on the first or second of the month.

Aw, it's too bad your experience has soured you on POR...or is it WDW in general? There are LOTS of recent posts about the norovirus infecting visitors. What a horrible way to spend a vacation and then, having to recover after you get home!?!

I'm a little worried about taking my mom at the end of April, now. Her GI system is sensitive. I'm not a germ-aphobe but still having her bring some of my favorite germ killer (she has a store, only available online for me) and we're going to spray the room and wash our hands at every opportunity. If we are infested, we're moving like you did!

Hope you all recover quickly!

We have stayed at Port of Orleans Riverside at least 3 times and have nothing but good things to say about the place.

Three years ago, I got bronchitis on my trip to Disney and all I can say is great things about how Disney helped me get to a place to be treated and well enough to be able to fly home - that was the goal. To not have to drive back to DE.

You can get sick anywhere.

Here's the response I got back on the part 3 thread of POR, hope it helps. (It was from the first part of Feb this year)

Originally Posted by Kathy Z

Pop comes in 6 packs; missed getting price. 2 liters of Coke or Sprite are 3.50; 20 ounce bottles of pop are 2.59. Simply orange is available in 13.25 oz. and V-8 in 12 oz. 24 pack case of 12 oz. bottles of Dasani are 16.00. A few beers come in 6 packs; more variety, both cans & bottles are available individually. I think you can see the whole selection on page 1 of this thread or on portorleans.org.

If you would have at least a $40 order you might find it easier to order from Garden Grocer like I did. My base order of $41.41 came to $57.74 with delivery charge & tax added. ($14 delivery charge for orders under $200.)
